Love Is the Devil: Study for a Portrait of Francis Bacon

Love Is the Devil: Study for a Portrait of Francis Bacon ★★★★½

Less a biopic than a series of moments, incidents, and scenes, all filtered through a slightly nightmarish visual style that echoes Bacon's most famous works. The clash between the somewhat larger-than-life acting, and the stylized, sometimes stripped-down settings, worked to give the whole film the feeling of a bleary, hung-over memory. I loved it.
